Finally, you can come in a bit later and the kids are more mature, but you're still a glorified baby sitter with a salary to match.

Education career Education Chance Cards
1) Playground Monitor
It's an uneventful day on the playground for <Sim>, when suddenly the unmistakable scent of trouble makes its presence known. The Big Kids enter the playground just after their lunch with a sweet tooth for bullying. <Sim> knows the younger kids don't stand a chance, as there aren't enough slides and tunnels in which to hide! He/She must act quickly with the tools at his/her disposal. Should <Sim> offer The Big Kids a delicious tray of fresh orange wedges to distract them from the younger kids, or should he/she stand up to them with detention slips at the ready? Offer Them Orange Wedges Success:
Skill Charisma +1
75% chance
Failure:

24% chance
Threaten Them with Detention Success:

Failure:
Got Fired Get Fired
75% chance
2) Teacher's Aide
<Sim> is taking the role sheets to the front office just after the morning announcements, when a frantic mother bursts through the front door with her son trailing behind her. "Stop right there!" the mother yells at <Sim>. "You cannot turn in that role sheet!" Taken aback, <Sim> informs the woman that, yes, he/she can turn in the role sheet. Flustered, the mother reveals that if her child is tardy once more, he'll have to repeat the third grade and it just isn't right, because it's her fault he's always late. With the pleading mother on her knees before him/her, <Sim> is faced with the choice of turning in the role sheet as is, or fudging it a bit to give the young boy just one more chance. Turn in the Role Sheet Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to Substitute Teacher
79% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to Playground Monitor
20% chance
Alter the Role Sheet Success:

Failure:
Got Fired Get Fired
79% chance
3) Substitute Teacher
<Sim> is called to substitute for Ms. Moorington, who has won the Teacher of the Year Award for the past 3 years. A bit intimidated, <Sim> takes a deep breath and arrives in the classroom to find its inhabitants have gone insane! He/She pulls a child down from the ceiling and demands to know what is going on. It appears that Ms. Moorington never actually taught, she just bribed the children with candy and falsified their report cards. Ms. Moorington has a lot of power with the school board, making it risky for <Sim> to reveal the conspiracy. Desperate times call for desperate measures - what should <Sim> do to get the classroom under control? Report Ms. Moorington's Scheme Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to Elementary School Teacher
75% chance
Failure:
Got Fired Get Fired
24% chance
Eat Lots of Candy! Success:
Skill Creativity +1

4) Elementary School Teacher
<Sim> really wants to impress the administration with his/her students, and the school district science fair looks like the perfect opportunity. Two of his/her students' projects really stand out: Harry Monroe's model that hypothesizes the result of hot cocoa brewed in a volcano, and Sally O'Minky's holographic gelatin projector. Both are top notch and cutting edge for the elementary scientific community, but <Sim> can only send one student. Who should she send? Harry Monroe Success:
Earned Money +§970
45% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§475
54% chance
Sally O'Minky Success:
Earned Money +§760

45% chance
5) High School Teacher
Spirit day for the high school is approaching and everyone is expected to participate - even teachers. However, things aren't so simple for <Sim>, who is up for evaluation before the school board on the same day. It's one thing to be spirited on a normal day with face paint and a crazy outfit, and another thing when paint and a crazy outfit may cost a teacher dearly for not taking evaluations seriously. <Sim> doesn't want to be criticized for a lack of school spirit, but he/she would also like to keep progressing as an educator. What should he/she do? Dress for Spirit Day Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to University Guest Lecturer
75% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to Elementary School Teacher
24% chance
Wear Normal Clothes Success:
Earned Money +§1,200
24% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§960
75% chance
6) University Guest Lecturer
<Sim> is requested by Sim State University's meteorology and sociology departments to lecture on the growing complexity of weather control devices, and the ethical and moral consequences of using the machines for its "When Lightning and Ethics Collide!" lecture series. The presentation moves along at a fine pace, with facts and opinions from both sides of the argument being presented. At the conclusion, <Sim> opens the floor to questions, when a rather smarmy looking graduate student in the front row asks "What do you think?" Should <Sim> say he/she is pro-control or pro-natural weather? Pro-Control Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to High School Principal
75% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to High School Teacher
24% chance
Pro-Natural Weather Success:
Earned Money +§2,460
24% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§1,860
75% chance
7) High School Principal
<Sim> is becoming increasingly worried about students falling asleep in class. Teachers can barely teach the students anything and morale is at an all time low. <Sim> brings in a group of consultants and they offer two solutions to the problem. The first is to use Ombutronic Generators to cool the school to near freezing temperatures, making it impossible to fall asleep. The alternative is arming every teacher, aide, and gym coach with a personal bullhorn to wake drowsy students. Both choices are rather extreme, though desperate times call for desperate measures. What plan should <Sim> implement? Chill the School Success:
Skill Logic +1
65% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to University Guest Lecturer
34% chance
Bullhorns for All Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to College Senior Professor
34% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§2,340
65% chance
8) College Senior Professor
<Sim> could really use the grant money offered with the London Scholarship for Immense Brains, but he/she hasn't published a paper in quite some time. There are a few topics of interest about which to write, most notably The Effect of Vegetables on the Sim Physique and Frostbite: A World Without Toes. Both subjects are quite compelling and will make excellent papers, so it isn't an easy decision. What subject should <Sim> write about to win the London Scholarship? The Effects of Vegetables Success:
Earned Money +§4,000
50% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to High School Teacher
49% chance
Frostbite Success:
Earned Money +§6,000
49% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§4,000
50% chance
9) College Dean of Students
Dean <Sim> is having trouble with a particular fraternity on campus, the Zigga Bugga Goos. The young men have a tendency to conduct pranks on facility members, throw obnoxious parties, and crash the homecoming parade every year with unnecessary fireworks and gaudy rock music. <Sim> has had enough! There are only two ways to deal with a fraternity this misbehaved: Kick the charter off campus, or pay a sorority to sabotage their social status. <Sim> is pretty sure both methods will work, but he/she isn't sure which one is best. What should <Sim> do? Kick them Off Campus Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to Education Minister
55% chance
Failure:
Got Fired Get Fired
44% chance
Hire the Sorority Success:
Got a Promotion Promoted to Education Minister
44% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to College Senior Professor
55% chance
10) Education Minister
The country is not happy with test scores for children in neighborhoods throughout the country. Polls indicate that the children just aren't learning, and drastic, unorthodox measures should be taken to put the nation's youth back on the right track. Secretary <Sim> proposes to the government a new curriculum of educational video games. Ideally, he/she proposes, children can learn and have fun at the same time. Two games really stand out: Bixby Rabbit and the Great Spelling Carrot, and Hunting and Fishing: Scavenging for Algebra! The budget only allows for one of the two games. Which one should <Sim> choose? Bixby Rabbit Success:
Got a Big Bonus +§45,000
75% chance
Failure:
Got Demoted Demoted to College Dean of Students
24% chance
Scavenging for Algebra Success:
Got a Big Bonus +§50,000
24% chance
Failure:
Got Fined -§37,000
75% chance

Education career icon

The Education career is the only new career in The Sims 3: Ambitions that follows the old career track format. To advance in education, Sims must build both charisma and logic. At higher levels, teachers will also be expected to hold lectures, which will earn them extra cash. At level 10, Sims unlock the ability "Give Amazing Lecture", which gives all who listen a positive moodlet. They also get $541/hour. This is the only career without an associated Lifetime Wish.
